Desolation Wilderness - With Snow
We were poured on last weekend in Southern CA, this week was 90 degrees at home, and then yesterday, there was snow all off the Desolation Wilderness while we rode about 20 some miles up and down granite staircases with Bare Feet! It was the first time I think I have ever really ridden in snow. It was absolutely gorgeous, coupled with the fall color change. The horses did fantastic with their bare feet. The horses just glided over the rocks at the walk, trot, and canter. I don't know how they have the time to choose where to put their hooves so perfectly to avoid the big rocks, but they do. Not even one chip.
If you have a chance, view this photo album to see the snow and the terrain we were riding on. It is absolutely gorgeous. http://www.rosetrace.com/TellsSeptember2007/TellsSeptember2007.html
